We had our 47th successful high altitude ballooning mission for the NASA Nebraska HAB program to coincide with the Grand Opening of the new Do Space digital library on 72nd and Dodge in Omaha.
We were trying a new piece of hardware that sent the mission data through GPS to be directly published online. All of our equipment worked well for the flight.
